A photographic exploration of the most revolutionary year of the twentieth century: 1968.

The year 1968 has gone down in history as the year of social and political movements, of global protests against the existing social model: workers, students, and ethnic minorities demanded reforms, justice, and improvement in living conditions. Tens of thousands marched through the streets, calling for an end to the Vietnam War. From Mexico to Japan, from France to Italy, there were clashes in the street and repression by the forces of law and order. The Prague Spring was suffocated by Soviet tanks. But 1968 was not only this: there were space missions and epochal murders, while Hippie culture and the Beat Generation ran wild and the wave of pacifism also conquered the theater.

This book presents images which best represent 1968 in every context. The talent of the best photographers of the time, accompanied by in-depth explanations, retraces and recounts this fateful year, so full of major events.
